Classical Music Dog Cd's For Separation Anxiety


Recommended Posts

Janet Marlowe's ZenDog CD is playing for my campers right now. I once heard Janet speak and she was very convincing about how the tones are created and put together specifically for calming our dogs. I've had this CD for years and I would say that it has had a calming influence on my campers.

I left the TV on for Maddie to help with her SA.

I've used the "Through a Dog's Ear" CD's for various client dogs with separation anxiety. It's based off the idea of "entrainment" or something. I honestly couldn't find the right studies that really backed the idea up, but I could see why it would help people calm down. Does it help calm down dogs? Mmm...I'd say the effect was minimal, if that. If anything, it was best used to mask other noises, which was helpful in reducing the dog's reaction to the environment.

We leave frank sinatra on for our boy. I too felt as though most music got loud or excited... this is calm and mellow.. but I agree with giselle and think it mostly just helps with background noise. He still loves it tho... Im convinced :)

We leave the TV on just as if we are home alone so there is no change for them. We have used the Dap liquid diffusers which helped two of our dogs, apparently they don't help everyone. The problem is the smell doesn't go very far from where it is plugged in so if they are not laying in a dog bed near it or in a cage near it I don't think it would help - but it may be worth a try. The things are plugged in and need to be refilled after 3-4 weeks so that is also something to consider - you don't want to plug them in and forget about it which would be a safety hazard, also don't want it at dog chewing on level either. Good Luck

When I first got Jack, he was a nervous wreck, and music was really soothing for him. Actually I put my collection of Van Morrison on loop, and that did the trick. His eyes would slooooowly close, and he'd drift off to sleep. :beatheart

Not a special CD, but I used to switch the bedroom radio over to Classic FM (UK commercial station specialising in soothing classical 'lollipops') for Doc when I went out to to begin with. He soon got over his separation anxiety but still likes a bit of background noise when I go out, so now just gets BBC Radio 4 (mostly talk) because that's what I listen to first thing in the mornings.

"It is also to be noted of every species, that the handsomest of each move best ... and beasts of the most elegant form, always excel in speed; of this, the horse and greyhound are beautiful examples."----Wiliam Hogarth, The Analysis of Beauty, 1753.
